Saelig Introduces iOs-Compatible Economical Bluetooth Wireless Barcode Scanner

The CM-500W3A, a compact Bluetooth Barcode Scanner from Saelig Company, Inc., is now iOS-compatible, making it even more useful for portable data collection.  The CM-500W3A is a high performance, handheld 2.4GHz Class I Bluetooth barcode scanner, designed for everyday use. Once the Bluetooth connection has been established with a PC, an iPad, or an iPhone, barcode data can easily be entered into word processing software, spreadsheets, emails, or text messages.

CM-500W3A uses a linear CCD image sensor with a built-in 630nm red LED illumination source. CM-500W3A’s internal 32-bit microprocessor reads linear barcodes at 100 scan/sec at a distance of 2” – 10”.  Ergonomic and lightweight, CM-500W3A offers three useful functionalities - Bluetooth, Memory, and Cabled: four different Bluetooth Modes are available (Master, Slave, USB HID, iOS) to communicate between PC, mobile phone and PDA; in Memory Mode, it can store up to 500 barcode readings with time stamps for later download; in Cable Mode, with a USB cable (supplied) connected, it can be used as tethered scanner, transferring data to and from internal flash memory, as well as charging the device.

Versatile CM-500WA is compact (5” x 1.5” x 0.7”) and lightweight (2 oz) and features 2 keys (scan/clear) plus a beeper and LEDs to indicate read status. With a USB cable attached, it becomes a “plug & scan” scanner.  Without the USB cable, it functions as a memory or wireless scanner. As a Bluetooth device, it can communicate with a Windows PC or a mobile phone, with instant or delayed data entry.  CM-500W3A‘s built-in Li-polymer battery pack (3.7V, 420mAH) can be recharged via any USB port, and the unit can read up to 15,000 scans before requiring a recharge.
CM-500W3A’s performance is remarkable - even scanning fine pitch barcodes through translucent static bags.  The internal non-volatile memory can store up to 500 scans. CM-500W3A is configurable for time stamp and output data format, and can transmit data to a remote PC either in “keyboard wedge” mode as if typing on a keyboard, or in memory mode, whereby up to 500 barcode scans are stored for batch entry.  Supported barcodes include Code 39, INT 25, Industrial 2 of 5, Matrix 2 of 5, Codabar (NW7), Code 93, Code 128,EAN 128, JAN/EAN/ UPC and fully RSS code (GS1 Databar ).

TURCK M8 CORDSETS WITH 100 PERCENT SHIELDING OPTION PROTECT AGAINST EMI/RFI

TURCK is now offering the option to completely shield M8 picofast ® cordsets by connecting a braided shield directly to the coupling nut. This provides a cost-effective and reliable connection with 100 percent cable and connector shielding, which protects against electromagnetic and radio frequency interference.

The 3 and 4-pin cordsets are available with flexlife ® PVC or PUR jacketed cable. All connectors deliver IEC IP 67 protection.

The M8 picofast line, like most TURCK cordsets, provides male or female, straight and right angle connectors, standard and custom lengths, and pigtails or extensions. Fully encapsulated mating receptacles are also offered, completing the system.

Banner Engineering DF-G3 Discrete Fiber Amplifier Features World-Class Long Range Sensing Capability

Banner Engineering introduces its DF-G3 discrete long-range fiber amplifier with dual digital displays for use with plastic and glass fiber optic assemblies. Featuring increased sensing power, the DF-G3 can sense more than 3 meters (10 ft.) with opposed mode fibers or more than 1 meter (3 ft.) with diffuse mode fibers. The extra power provides increased detection reliability for dark targets at long range and enhanced detection sensitivity when using specialty fiber assemblies for large area and small part detection applications.

The DF-G3 is available with a single discrete output or two dual discrete outputs. The dual discrete outputs can be independently taught to trigger at different intensity values, which is ideal for correct part-in-place or error-proofing, bottle down, and edge guiding applications.

“We developed the DF-G3 fiber amplifier to meet our customers’ need to precisely detect smaller targets at longer ranges” said Dennis Smith, Senior Marketing Manager, Banner Engin…

TURCK’s BL Compact Family Collects Analog and Digital Signals at the Source

TURCK’s BL Compact system is a revolutionary modular I/O solution for collecting a variety of signals in a single, rugged node on a network. Rather than routing all signals through a control cabinet, this device makes it possible to obtain analog, digital, thermocouple, RTD, serial, RFID or a mixture of signal types in a compact, machine-mountable device over DeviceNet™, CANopen and PROFIBUS ®.

Up to two signals types can be combined in any combination in the BL Compact system, including RFID and analog, digital and serial—and more. The BL Compact system may be customized to suit a user’s specific needs, so that devices may be added to an existing network and signals may be gathered on the machine without an enclosure. This drop-in solution can be used to connect up to 16 devices—drastically reducing the time it takes to run wires for each device back to the control cabinet and the potential for wiring errors.

The BL Compact system is currently available with four, eight or 16 ports i…
